Spring Festivals, Fairs, and Carnivals in April for NYC Kids
New York City's spring outdoor festival season kicks off this April with more than a dozen fun and mostly FREE fairs, festivals, parades, and carnivals. Of course, it helps that April not only brings showers - it also brings Easter, Earth Day and Arbor Day! Some annual Mommy Poppins favorites take place too, including Car-Free Earth Day, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Cherry Blossom Festival, the Queens County Farm Museum's Children's Carnival, and Staten Island's St. George Day celebration.
These events aren't just fun, they also foster community spirit by bringing folks together. Many fairs include old-fashioned games, eco-activities, homemade treats, and live performances. Here's your guide to the awesome NYC fairs, carnivals, and festivals happening for families this April.
